Silentó scored the smash hit of the year with his dance craze “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”. The infectious song had everyone from toddlers to senior citizens dancing. Literally, the song was everywhere.

Well, now were finally seeing the fruits of the “Nae Nae” labor and, to some, it’s pretty sweet. According to several reports, Silentó made off with $100,000 for his hit record. And while that’s no where near chump change for a 17-year-old, we’re still questioning if that’s enough. Call us crazy, but with a song that has over 500,000,000 Youtube views and endless rotations on almost every radio station 100K seems a little light, right?

Good news for Silentó though, Capitol Records sees him as more than just a one hit wonder and has signed him to a four album deal. He could score up to $500,000 for each one! Now, thats a payday.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards



This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
